Kim Dotcom’s extradition hearing delayed until 2013

Kim Dotcom, the founder of defunct file hosting website Megaupload, will not see a judge regarding extradition until 2013, according to The New Zealand Heard. The alleged piracy king was expected to appear in court with his co-conspirators on August 6th in an extradition hearing scheduled to last three weeks. Discrepancies over the evidence used in the case have delayed the trial until March of next year, however. Megaupload was shut down in January by the U.S. government for violating piracy laws and Dotcom, along with three others, was charged with racketeering, copyright infringement and money laundering. Despite the charges, Dotcom has vowed that Megaupload will return.
